The NSW Rural Women’s Gathering Forbes Committee were pleased to welcome over 50 attendees to their Information Evening at Forbes Golf Club.
This workshop was provided to connect the community with the Gathering, familiarise locals with the history of the Gathering and how they can contribute. It was also an opportunity for potential workshop providers, interested sponsors and those who are interested in attending all or part of the Gathering to find out further information.
The NSW Rural Women’s Gathering will be held in Forbes between 22 and 24 October 2021.
Central West Lachlan Landcare are pleased to be supporting the event and value the contribution from many supporters and contributors helping to bring this event together.
During the Information Evening, Committee members covered off on information about the Gathering, including advice on how to submit an expression of interest to host a workshop or field trip, Sponsorship options for the event and other opportunities for involvement.
The Gathering Committee wish to make a wide variety of learning opportunities available to attendees, with the goal of helping them to learn a new skill, be creative, be inspired, focus on themselves, relax and have fun.
During the 2019 Walcha Gathering, we were fortunate to have the opportunity to get feedback from attendees on what they would like to see included as part of the next Gathering program. Their feedback is assisting the Committee to make decisions on the opportunities that will be on offer.
Given the circumstances that have faced much of our State over the past few years, we want to take as much financial pressure off rural women as possible, so sponsorship is essential to providing this event, so sponsorship of the event is essential.
If you would like a Sponsorship Prospectus or Workshop/Field Trip Hosting Expression of Interest, paperwork is available via our Landcare website. There are many ways that you can support the Gathering, both financially, and in kind.
